Juicy Lucy (Needs A Boogieman), the title track from awesome French ElectroPop duo Jupiter’s début album is getting s single release this week, in all it’s Moog Funk glory. It’s accompanied by an absolutely stunning reMix package.
It;s hard to say Juicy Lucy (Needs A Boogieman) was one of the standouts of the album, when the album contained nearly one-hundred percent killer tracks, but it certainly was one of the tracks that sticks in your head, with it’s twisted P-Funk bassline and infectiously catchy chorus. It’s the prefect mix of sweet ElectroPop and warm French Disco. Our girl Little Boots delivers a majestic reMix that mixes up a deep 90s House vibe with a few Cosmic elements. Vicky brings a hypnotic dancefloor groove, layered with and uplifting piano hook and some great robo-vocoding. Punks Jump Up go down the warped Disco route with their reMix, the funky squelch bass powering the track along and commanding you to dance amidst the piercing synth stabs. Belgian angled Disco-meister Zimmer takes us down a Kraftwerk meets Moroder road with his take on the track. A deep electronic, at times Acidic pulse, that belies some seriously beautiful melodies.
Vertical Disco? What the hell is Vertical Disco? Here’s me just coming to terms with Horizontal Disco when one of our favourite Frenchmen Zimmer, Horizontal Disco king, goes all 90° on us and drops a big chunk of upright boogie.
A long time staple of his DJ sets, Zimmer has unleashed his edit of Chic‘s absolute classic Everybody Dance. Sucking the hook right out of the track and emphasising it to it’s fullest effect, Zimmer truly gets the art of the Edit right. Taking the immediately recognisable groove and tweaking it to dancefloor perfection. It’s an Reworking that would have made the disco pioneers of the Edit proud. Now, I think, it’s time we prepare for Diagonal Disco. Y’know, just so we aren’t taken by surprise.
Remember Belgian outfit Montevideo’s Horses from back in February? A track that combined a New York Disco feel (no doubt helped by recording at DFA’s studio) with an Italo feel. The band are currently working on their new release, but in the meantime they, and Discotexas, are giving ways two new reMixes of Horses to tide us over until their second album drops.
First premièred on his last mixtape is Zimmer reMix. A burbling Disco tune that piles on the Cosmic elements and it’s fair share of cowbell. Pure Horizontal Disco, as Zimmer would term it, the track runs with bubbling analog bass and frantic percussion on a galactic trip that deserves an Animé video. The second reMix comes from Discotexas core trio of Moullinex, Xinobi & Mr. Mitsuhirato who kick of with a reverby 909 beat and proceed to fold an ‘90’s House vibe into a European Disco groove, the result is pretty unique and pretty captivating. Totally a track to get lost in.

Zimmer – May Mixtape ‘Sage Paradis‘ = It’s this months mixtape from Zimmer loaded with some of the best laid back Disco from the past couple of months. The tracklist drops tommorw, but we can tell you there is one of two track in there that we’ve been excited about for a while. This tape is perfect listening if this scorching weather is making you lazy.
Zimmer – April Mixtape ‘Desert Drive‘ = Zimmer must be knackered! It only seems like a couple of weeks ago he dropped his March tape, then he released the reMix EP of ‘Horizontal Disco’, now he;s straight back on the horse with this new mix. The ‘Desert Drive’ has a slightly relaxed feel to it, full of chilled, dreamy Disco. It’s all dirty rolling basslines and soaring synths. Sit back and enjoy.
